    What are the facilities on Goat Island?
    Choose one

    1-14K gold fixtures on flush toilets
    2-Flush toilets
    3-Permanent vault toilets
    4-Port-a-jon
    5-Community Latrine
    6-Personal cat holes

    What about water?
    Is there a community spigot or anything?
    If not, do you haul it in or filter the lake?
    He is your friend, your companion, your defender... he is your dog. You are his life, his leader, and master. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of that devotion.

    Think Gilligan's Island. . . not a single luxury.

    Although, the marina is across the lake maybe a 10-15 minute paddle. . . or less than 30 secs by jet-ski for any of those "gotta have" items. Water can be had from the marina as well. Most brought over water last year plus I had two large collapsible water coolers filled. I don't recall anyone running out of water last year. However, with my inlaws living on the lake and 5 minutes away by boat, we will have access to plenty of "pre-filtered" water.

    As for the "gotta GO!" moments. . . the personal cathole method was the preferred method last year. The community idea may not be a bad idea but some have taken issue with depositing where others have already deposited. Personally, I am in favor of this but location and construction would all need to be worked out. Maybe ChickenWing has some thoughts or ideas about this. . .

    So, just so I know. would this be considered a "family friendly" hang, or should I try to pawn the young'uns off for the weekend?
    It could be that the purpose of my life is merely to serve as a warning to others.

    Definitely a FAMILY FRIENDLY HANG. I am planning to have my 8 & 11 year old daughters with me. Not sure if both will stay out on the island as my in-laws live on the lake but they will both be out there, hopefully hanging with me.

    But as a second note, we will/have a permit for the entire island (I believe I am correct, right CW?) and there is plenty of space for those wishing to have more of the "adult" experience. This island works perfectly so that all can enjoy the weekend.

    In my best Ed McMahon voice - "Hiyo!!! You are correct sir! Yes! Yes you are!"

    ...and I plan on having atleast one of my children with me. The bigger part of MY island will be set aside for FAMILY. Sites 1-3 will be G to PG while Sites 4 & 5 will be considered PG-13.

    As far as a latrine is concerned... well, I am divided on this one. I don't like doing my business where someone else has done theirs but I also don't like DODGING all the land mines.

    Sorry it has taken me so long to check in here. I have been working and schooling.

    @Muskrat on a side note - didn't get the side job so it shouldn't interfere w/ this hang but I'm still looking.

    Sorry to hear about the job situation, but we get to hang again ????

    As for the latrine idea goes, I'm 50/50 on the subject, makes me no different.

    As you can see, this is just a Bump in hopes of generating a little more interest.

    A group of politicians deciding to dump a President because his morals are bad is like the Mafia getting together to bump off the Godfather for not going to church on Sunday.

    I just learned my lyrics and tried not to bump into the trumpet player. That was my philosophy.
    Jo Stafford

    I've always been more afraid of being left alone or left out than of things that go bump in the night.
    Nelson Gidding

    If a bullfrog had wings it wouldn't bump his behind every time he hopped.
    Don King

    Living the past is a dull and lonely business; looking back strains the neck muscles, causing you to bump into people not going your way.
    Edna Ferber

    Physics investigates the essential nature of the world, and biology describes a local bump. Psychology, human psychology, describes a bump on the bump.
    Willard Van Orman Quine

    When kids hit one year old, it's like hanging out with a miniature drunk. You have to hold onto them. They bump into things. They laugh and cry. They urinate. They vomit.
